Summary "In the Shadow of the Palms: Iraq is the only documentary filmed in Iraq prior to, during and after the fall of Saddam's regime, and has been described as a humane and profoundly authentic portrayal of the struggles of that country's people.It provides an intimate insight into their lives under Saddam, as they prepare for the rapidly approaching war.As the war raged, and despite numerous arrests by the Iraqi Government, the production continued to film, documenting life in Baghdad not yet seen in the media.With a new government in place, the film takes audiences back into Iraq, and documents the changes in the lives of these individuals and Iraqi society since Saddam's fall.In the Shadow of the Palm: Iraq presents the everyday realities for Iraqis living through this controversial war - the war that is shaping the political future of the region and the world." -- website
